Get Rid Of The Advertisements

He fell - in love...
 
Five days on ice and snow we spent,
and got to know each other.
Our lost team through blizzard went,
including my young brother.

Our compass then we had to trust,
we didn’t do much talking.
For both just moving was a must,
we had to keep on walking.

Within the folds of clothing,
we carried our last food.
Then rationing with loathing,
to eat it all not good.

No partner in your life,
but you looked a lovely lass.
No wish to be a wife,
close friendships you’d let pass.

In time I’d hoped to show,
how good your life could be.
On dates I hoped we’d go,
deep friendship we would see.

Too lonely to notice I’m blue,
as windchill burned my skin.
You simply thought of you...
and your issues deep within.

Our pace I knew was slowing,
because I was in pain.
Your fitness kept you going,
my efforts were in vain.

All the food I gave to you,
and put you to the fore.
Gave you the compass too,
I couldn’t do much more.

Your survival was depending,
on whatever pace we set.
My life prepared for ending,
simply happy that we’d met.

I knew that if I fell,
by accident perchance...
For seconds I’d know hell,
but you’d then stand a chance.

I had but one regret,
that for you I’d make a show.
Accident I would let,
happen, then you’d go...

In human terms it’s been years,
and now you have a life.
At first for me you shed some tears,
now you’re mother and a wife.

You are so beautiful,
your life is rearranged.
From heaven’s gates I’m dutiful,
and watch how your life changed.
